Our exploding debt

Political Cartoon by Gary Varvel

Even Hillary agrees

"From the time President George W. Bush took the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2001, to the time Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, public debt via the government grew $3 trillion — from $3.3 trillion to $6.3 trillion.

According to the Bureau of the Public Debt, as of Aug. 20, 2010, after just the first 19 months of President Obama's four-year term, the public debt had grown to $8.83 trillion, an increase of $2.53 trillion.
